Abstract: In this report, we present an example of the re-design of a particular course unit using the ACM Computer Science Curricula 2013, in order to address a concern of a Quality Assurance evaluation made using the same standard. The course unit described in this report is a Databases course unit given in the third semester of Computer Science at Reykjavik University. We first present the process of synthesizing the ACM topics and learning outcomes into a course description and
associated learning outcomes. We then present an evaluation of the ACM conformance of the course unit to the ACM learning outcomes, which shows that the objectives of the re-design were met.
Finally, we describe the execution of the course unit; in particular how the teacher ensured coverage of the learning outcomes. We believe that the experience of using the ACM curricula for the course re-design was very positive. The major contribution in this work is the process for re-designing learning outcomes according to the ACM Curricula 2013.
